Photography at the Emerald, Autumn Photography Exhibition Committee, is delighted to inform you that your entry(s) listed above has been accepted into our 2017 National Juried Photography Competition and Exhibition.

We hope you will be able to attend the Artist’s Awards Presentation and Reception on Friday evening, September 8th, 5:00 – 6:00 pm, at the Emerald Art Center, 500 Main St, Springfield, OR. Remember, this reception is to honor you – the artist, and allows the public to meet and greet the participants of the show. The People’s Choice Award is chosen by the public who visit Emerald Art Center during the month of September. The votes will be counted and the final award will be presented at the 2nd Friday Art Walk and Mayor’s Art Show Reception, October 13th. We hope to see you there. If you are unable to make it to the exhibition, you will still be able to view the show catalog on our web site after the conclusion of the show: http://www.emeraldartcenter.org

Again, congratulations, and we wish you the best of luck in the award selections.

Sentinel taken in Central Oregon near the John Day River is the Image that was selected and is shown below:

Very happy to be included in this National show.  Hope some of you can attend the reception.
